Mancelona Regional Chamber of Commerce and all its members welcome you to our community. Mancelona is located in the northwest region of Michigan's lower peninsula, in beautiful Antrim County.
WELCOME to Mancelona! It is March, but Mother Nature can't decide what she wants to do with the weather. It has a mind of its own and changes like, well, the weather! Even with the warm-ups, thaws and sunny days, temps have dropped enough at night to freeze, and some of the snow that melted away was replinished with fresh snow. It's amazing what a difference there is between some of our nearby communities. Some, like Mancelona, still have a lot of snow on the ground, and in others there is hardly a trace.
Don't put your winter gear away just yet. Three action packed, exciting weekends are coming up.
Treetops Resort in Gaylord is hosting a (snowmobile) hill climb March 25-26, 2016. On April 2-3, it's the Schuss Mountain Snow Challenge. Arrive early! This is a huge annual event that draws thousands of spectators. Racing on Saturday starts approximately 11:00 a.m., and racing on Sunday begins approximately 10:30 a.m. The following weekend, April 8-9, snowmobiles return to the mountain for a Hill Climb uphill drag race event. Drag racing is Saturday, up the face of Schuss Mountain. Additional details are posted in our Events Calendar.
When you come through Antrim County, highlights in the Mancelona area include scenic Deadman's Hill, Jordan River Fish Hatchery, Jordan Valley and Landslide Creek. Pack a picnic lunch, bring your camera, and make a day or two of it. The pristine waters of the Jordan Valley, the peacefulness, fresh air and "God's Country" await your vist.
During the winter months, you can access the Jordan Valley and Landslide creek via snowmobile. Some of the best groomed trails are right here in the Mancelona/Alba area.
